Stihl 090 Chainsaw Milling - Granberg - First Post
« on: May 22, 2018, 10:14:22 PM »
Hi Fellas,
Long time lurker, first time poster. I've always enjoyed this site and found many answers to questions so I decided to finally join up. What brought me here was an interest in chainsaw milling. I ended up with a Stihl 090 and a Granberg mill which has been a good combo so far. Lots of power in the saw and a great mill. I will say that the long running time does vibrate the saw a bit, already lost a number of screws and broke some stuff. One thing I'm on the look out for is a flywheel for the saw. Here's a photo of the one I want if anyone has one or knows someone that does. Hope I post the picture right..we'll see.


 I've also made some videos using the saw and I've got some others of related things I'm doing milling....perhaps this would all be better in a milling thread.
Here's my latest video.

Looking forward to being able to ask questions and get you all's feedback on some things. So I guess this is my "Hello" post, most of my interest will be around chainsaws and milling.
Saws I have are ...Stihl 090 with a second one coming soon from ebay soon (both non-av), Stihl MS390, Stihl S10 (top handle), Homelite XL and a tiny 32cc Montgomery Ward Featherweight. Hopefully, the pictures and the video pop up....nice meeting you all.

Welcome aboard!! You have come to the right place. The saw is getting on in years, that flywheel is for the breaker ignition. I don't NEED an 090 but if one came my way...

Thanks, seen you in many of the threads I have read through. The saw is indeed on in years, could be almost twice my age.

Enjoyed your video.  Thanks for sharing.  That was a ton of work!

Can you elaborate a bit on the winch that is on your mill?   That sure looks like a good idea.
